The laptop is supposed to use the Intel 4000 until it reaches its limit and then switch over to the HD 7730M.

as ihog said plus it uses the intel hd more aggressively to conserve power when it's on battery.

I know that


The last bit to your statement was a little confusing:

"How do I find out what graphics card my laptop and how do I switch graphics cards? "


He meant to ask how he'll know which GPU his laptop is using, but frankly, I'm not sure how to monitor that.

there are two ways I can think of for checking which GPU is enabled but the methods are a little clumsy:


1) go to device manager and change the view to "Devices by Connection", select your display device and expand the branches.

2) goto display properties and select the "Settings" tab, this should bring up the active display device and GPU.


I'm surprised there isn't a notification agent in the notification area.
